” The links shown below some sites in our search results, called sitelinks, are meant to help users navigate your site. Our systems analyze the link structure of your site to find shortcuts that will save users time and allow them to quickly find the information they’re looking for.
We only show sitelinks for results when we think they’ll be useful to the user. If the structure of your site doesn’t allow our algorithms to find good sitelinks, or we don’t think that the sitelinks for your site are relevant for the user’s query, we won’t show them. “

You might have read or noticed that Google has implemented a new feature in their search engine. You can now filter search results on ‘reading level’. I’m not quite sure how exactly this reading level is calculated, I believe Aizu might be able to shed some light on that though.
It’s probably based on the difficulty of the language used, and not so much the difficulty of the content it explains. But I’m really not sure, heh.
